The Morions of Marinduque

Faces of Moriones Festival
The story goes like this... Longinus is the centurion who pierced the side of our Lord while he was hanging on the cross. Longinus, who was nearly blind, was healed when some of the blood and water from Jesus fell into his eyes. It was then he exclaimed "Indeed, this was the son of God!". Longinus then converted, left the army, took instruction from the apostles and became a monk in Cappadocia. There he was arrested for his faith, his teeth forced out and tongue cut off.

Marinduque - A Preview

The Morions of Marinduque
This is a preview of my photo-adventure in a sleepy little island province which is often eclipsed by its neighbors' heavily marketed popularity. A hidden bounty of both white sand and coral beaches, clear and radiant waters, century old churches and ancestral homes, caves and islands that collectively comes alive every Easter for the quirky Moriones Festival.
